THE ELEVATOR PITCH
The Hum’n’bards Performance Troupe is a collective of actor-musicians, rooted in the communal and political narrative of folk stories, music, and science fiction. Our mission is to share uncommon stories through original music.

We at the Hum'n'bards believe that art needs to be accessible to people, regardless of financial ability. Therefore, we do not require people to pay to see our shows, but we do invite them to pay as much or as little as they feel is appropriate.

WHAT WE DO
The Hum'n'bards create completely original musicals spanning genres and styles, from our post-apocalyptic folk opera Pangaea, to our clowning rock cabaret Glister, to a band-approved adaptation of The Taxpayers album God Forgive These Bastards, and many more.  What all of these productions have in common is the people making the art: our company's board, members, and majority of artists are in the queer/LGBTQIA+ community, particularly the transgender community.  We strive toward promoting the young, queer voices that are often underrepresented in theatre, from our casts and production teams to our long-standing administrative staff.

BE OUR FRIENDS
That all being said, there is still a lot of work to do, and we want you to be part of it! Joining us monthly will allow us to reach our most important goals: compensating our artists for the work they do, finding venues that benefit both us and our audiences, continuing our accessible Pay-What-You-Wish system, and more. In return, we promise to share some exciting new work with you...and only you. Yes, you reading this. Particularly you.

We are so excited to have you on board as a supporter of our voices, and thank you so much for helping these Hum'n'bards sing.
